[Argentinian way of BBQ: Asado] Onion Focaccia

Finally it’s BBQ season again, this means time for Onion Focaccia!

Therefore here it is: The first not so sweet recipe on my blog! “Asado” or sometimes called “parrillada” is the Latin American way of BBQ. Because of my family I have got a special connection to Argentina and I enjoy long BBQs. I love the atmosphere when everybody is sitting outside and it’s a warm summer night.

One of the best things, besides the atmosphere, is the food! Asados include a lot of meat (steak, sausages, chorizo and grilled chicken), tapas (olives, ham and vegetables), various salads (my favorites are greek style ones or Italian ones with melon or cheese!), the vegetables (I prefer grilled zucchini or eggplant) and of course (one of my favorite elements is) red wine and last but not least: bread. Don’t underrate the last element! Especially not if it’s an amazing bread like this! Inspired by Italian, Spanish and Latin American influences I created this bread for a BBQ we had last week.

So if you need an idea of what to bring to the next BBQ, here is the recipe for the bread everybody will love! What do you think about this Focaccia with herbs and onion? The texture of this bread is just amazing: fluffy (because of the yeast), very aromatic (especially if you add dried tomatoes) and definitely NOT dry!
